Atomic Radius becomes less as you move from left to right in the periodic table -Bigger nuclear charge - Energy of oribtals decreases -orbital radius decreases Electronegative element has lower energy levels that attract electrons Chemical properties (ionization energy) doesn’t change much in transition elements and in the lanthanide elements
